IPS: ISTEP+ testing running smoothly

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indianapolis Public Schools began ISTEP+ testing on Monday, and school officials say its going well across the district.

Dr. Wanda H. Legrand, Deputy Superintendent for Academics, says students arrived focused and ready for testing, following a number of weather delays and cancellations this winter. Legrand credited students, parents and staff for pacing themselves each day to teach and learn required skills.

Students are taking the applied skills portion of the test–a written component–this week and will take the computer application of ISTEP starting April 28.

The IPS ISTEP+ testing window is scheduled for March 10 through March 19.
